International Friendship Day - 2nd August 2009
The day for celebrating the beautiful relation called Friendship. It is the only relation in the world which you choose on your own. Of course, you cannot choose who your parents would be but you and only you can decide who joins your world of friends.
However, I personally believe that Friendship should be celebrated each day and not on a specially commemorated day because it is too precious a relation to be just observed once in a year.
Coming to the point, International Friendship Day celebrations take place in most parts of the world on the first Sunday of August every year. It is believed that this tradition of dedicating a day every year in honor of friends started in the United States of America in 1935.
Lets be friends this Friendship Day! Come on people wish your near & dear ones. Its the time to revive broken relationships and forge new friendships for a lifetime! Let the message of Friendship spread its wings and fly the world making the people who read it, smile! :)
"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival."
- C. S. Lewis
